Your guide to Vermont online casinos, in-person gambling and mobile sports wagering in the Green Mountain State.
It’s a nearly, but not just yet, story for the state of Vermont as far as online gambling is concerned.
Back in 2020, a sports betting bill was introduced to allow Vermont sports betting. However, the bill has not yet been passed. Bill H127 headed to the governer in May 2023 for final approval, so we await the decision.
Aside from this potential progress, Vermont offers little to its people in the form of gambling. We’ll break it down for you below.
Are there Any Casinos in Vermont?
Unfortunately, there are no casinos present in the state of Vermont. The nearest casino of note is in bordering Massachusetts – home to Encore Boston Harbor.
Encore Boston Harbor is owned by Wynn. The Wynn brand is renowned for its incredible hotels, resorts and entertainment venues. It’s definitely worth visiting, and it has a rewards program for those who wish to visit more than once.
Is Online Casino Gaming Legal in Vermont?
Vermont online casinos are illegal. There are no legal, regulated online casinos present in the Green Mountain State.
There is no timeline for when Vermont online casinos will be allowed to ‘open’. However, from looking at other states, it is expected that online sports betting will land in Vermont before online casino gaming does. There are also no poker rooms in Vermont.
Can You Bet on Sports in Vermont?
This answer is becoming monotonous now. Unfortunately, you cannot wager on sports in-person or online.
However, if you are willing to make the journey, all of Vermont’s bordering states allow online sports betting to take place. Massachusetts, New York and New Hampshire have all legalized sports betting.
Even Canada, North of Vermont, has some jurisdictions which allow you to legally bet on sports.
Vermont Horse Racing
The only type of betting that is legal in Vermont is pari-mutuel wagering on horses. However, the state is not home to a racetrack. Therefore, you can only wager on horse racing outside of Vermont.
Can You Play DFS in Vermont?
Some argue that Daily Fantasy Sports is a form of gambling, others argue that it isn’t. Either way, the answer is that you can play DFS in Vermont.
Daily Fantasy Sports platforms such as FanDuel and DraftKings can be accessed in Vermont. And they’re free to sign up to.
